The Problem:

Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) sought support for its Program and Project Management Division (PPMD) to reduce project costs and risks, improve estimation of resource needs, streamline processes and procedures, and reduce the variation in project execution and reporting.

The Solution:

Octo provided program and project management services that help PPMD reduce project costs and risks, better estimate resource needs, and reduce variation in project execution and reporting. Leveraging our ITIL expertise, we helped to establish standards and processes that support both Agile and Waterfall methodologies and that adhere to all mandates, regulations, and OCIO priorities.

Key Takeaways
  • Octo has successfully transformed several OJP OCIO programs and projects to Agile project management methodologies by developing, communicating, integrating, and executing Agile processes, procedures, and values.
  • We also provided critical support to the creation, development, and recommendation of capital investment strategies and tools to improve technology investment management.
  • Leveraging our ITIL expertise, we helped OJP define and implement key processes and practices that better align to an Agile environment and comply with enterprise guidelines and Federal Government governance policies.

The Benefits

Octo helped to improve the way OJP invests in IT, streamline its application and system development processes, and enhance its governance support structures. These actions reduce program risk, provide valuable financial resources, and improve the quality and timeliness of IT products and services.
